After 6 months of writing and recording, We have officially released our EP to the general internets! Never have I ever been so proud to put out a record like this one. My heart is with my bros @alessanbrochill, @brett_rots and @ethanstrongarms. Big ups to my man @nickdragasic and Maxwell Sillypants Lindsay for making this happen they way it should have. Check it out, I’m sure you’ll at least dig the first 30 seconds of it.
Walking up a hill in a not so correct state of mind at 3 in the morning can bring all kinds of thoughts to your head. Evidently, sometimes that’s just the right of kick you need to settle back into reality. Visiting my old college brought back a lot of good memories and allowed me to see a lot of people I have missed over this past year, but it has also brought my attention to the fact that I’ve been focusing on the future instead of reality.
Reality is hard work. It’s realizing that while things may be hard at times, you can’t lose sight of the goal, the overarching message that you want to bring out. There will be moments in the journey that will make you question it, but you have to go on. I’ve seen so many good people give up on their dreams just because they have faced a few challenges. This won’t be me.
In my reality, I have realized that the most important thing in life is to be good to yourself. After a couple of months of constantly chewing this over in my mind, I have realized that I need to be better to myself. So with this, I invite you to join me. Let’s be better at everything we do and to everyone we know, starting with number one.
I see a lot of people are really down in the dumps lately. I may have met some of you, and I may have not. I was also going through a bit of a rough time in the past few weeks but I’ve been doing some thinking and thought I’d share it with anyone who’s reading this. Life can be a real downer sometimes. A couple of weeks ago I was sitting in my car with my dad talking some stuff over with him and he said something that really stuck with me. It was in hebrew, but the gist of it was “Sometimes life doesn’t work the way you want to. All you can do is the right thing”.
Now, what’s the right thing? In any given situation that could mean something different. It may be telling the truth, it may be changing the way you think about things. I guess for me it was a bit of both. For you though? You might feel depressed. You might feel like there’s no hope. There’s always hope. Life is pretty long, if you’re under the age of 20 like me, you haven’t even reached a quarter of it yet. There are good people in your life. There are things that make you happy. The best advice I can give you is surround yourself with the people and things that make you happy. Friends, Family, Music, whatever floats your boat. Think about it this way; You can think about your problems and get further inside your head, or you could do the right thing and live your life.
"I Believe you should live each day as if it is your last, which is why I don’t have any clean laundry, because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?" - Albert Einstein
I suppose the most important thing you could ever do is learn from your mistakes. Some mistakes shake the foundation of what you thought was real, what you thought was true. Some mistakes are small and some are big. Some mistakes can hurt people, some can bring people together. Every decision you make alters the course of your life forever, you have to choose wisely. You could lie about your mistakes and pretend they never happened or you could face them and deal with the outcome. It might not be pretty, it might not be comfortable, but in the end facing your mistakes is the healthiest thing for everyone. Once you’ve made a mistake there is no regretting it, but sometimes one can’t help but wonder what might have been. In the end, all you can do is live your life, learn grow from what you’ve experienced. I can’t say that I don’t regret my mistakes, I can’t say that I’m not sorry for things I’ve done and to people I hurt. I can’t that I’m proud of everything I’ve done in my life. The only thing I can say is that all I can do is live my life, and learn from my mistakes. One day make peace with myself.
